New filter has approx 17k and I will wait for it to show evidence of plugging before I swap it out.

Thanks for posting up the pic. Anybody reading have thoughts about the bypass filter seemingly not picking much of anything up? I'm not knocking the bypass setups, but I would like to hear feedback from the more "experienced" minds that wander these halls and argue among each other

I added a bypass at around 100,000 miles, at that point entirely on conventional silicate containing coolant. My first filter completely plugged in about 2000 miles to the point that it wasn't even warm after a half hour drive. Second filter made it about 6000. Since then (the last 10 years) I have changed them about every year to year and a half and haven't experienced another plugged filter. I don't have any concerns about the effectiveness of a bypass system removing solids.

great article on water pump and coolant info.

I understand from past owner the water pump was replaced at 75K. Truck now has 168K so wondering what is normal life of these pumps. Not sure type of replacement pump it look like the OEM style with main bottom coming off right lower side of pump.

It does not appears to be leaking at this point.

It appears to have the gold coolant installed. So will most likely go back with that when changing out pump.. Was thinking about the cast iron IH pump and changing out O rings in pump as shown with better type rings.

What is recommend coolant the motorcraft or something else.

is this correct stuff
Amazon.com: Genuine Ford Fluid VC-7-B Gold Concentrated Antifreeze/Coolant - 1 Gallon: Automotive Amazon.com: Genuine Ford Fluid VC-7-B Gold Concentrated Antifreeze/Coolant - 1 Gallon: Automotive

how many gallons needed to do a good flush and replace. Was just going to drain coolant and refill with regular water from city tap run till hot with heater on and drain fluid, fill and flush again, then do pump replace and new coolant.

If you have the Motorcraft Gold coolant already, I'd assume your 7.3 is a L99 or newer, yes?

If yes, I'd suggest a heavy duty ELC coolant meeting Cat EC-1 spec, like Chevron Delo HD ELC.

Yes I know it's an old thread but a good one with excellent info. I've added the International water pump to my list of upcoming to do's but want to ask those who have done it if the 1/2 npt to 5/8 hose barb has to be 45 degrees to fit or will a straight do the job just fine. I saw a complete kit on line and it appeared to have the straight fitting. Anyone done this with the straight???

Thanks, Paul

Straight fitting will certainly work. I used the 45 to give the hose coming off it a kink-free angle to where it needed to go up above.

Thanks Mike,
I was looking at pics online before my water pump actually arrived and trying to gather parts. Some seem to have only one boss for a fitting at the outlet end but others have 2 like yours. The single boss units looked like it was on top and a straight would be better. I have both a straight and 45 fitting and will see which fits best once I get the old pump off and can hold the new in place. Sure looks like the 45 will be the right one though.

I really appreciate the time you put in on this thread. It really made it an easy decision to go ahead and do it. I was going to do a seperate bypass system when I found this write up. I like this much better.

I never installed my bypass kit. This seemed like the cleaner way to go, and looks more like a factory install. I'll probably end up selling the kit to somebody who wants to go that route.
